Together we can make wetland conservation and restoration a national and global priority
Healthy wetlands store carbon and water, reduce emissions, support 40% of biodiversity and provide for life.
Let’s stand up and recognise the #PowerofWetlands.
Over the coming months, world leaders will make decisions that will shape the future of the planet. Countries are updating their commitments to the Paris Agreement, when they pledged to keep global warming below 2°C and help society adapt to the worst impacts of climate change.
It’s vital we meet this global target. Healthy wetlands can help us achieve this. Wetland conservation and restoration must be part of climate action plans.

Today, in honor of World Wetlands day, Youth Engaged in Wetlands, Wetlands International and Power of Wetland Ambassadors are happy to share this special poem celebrating the #PowerOfWetlands.
But that’s not all! Today, we are launching a two week-long consultation on a Draft Open Letter, which calls for the Power of Wetlands to be better recognised and integrated into climate processes.
